I am a Tucson attorney with a wide variety of clients including those with land use, natural resources, environmental, and water law issues. Having grown up in Southern Arizona, I have been hiking, camping, mountain biking, fishing, and enjoying nature as long as I can remember. I spend most of my free time with my family exploring the Sky Islands, with a particular fondness for Santa Cruz and Cochise Counties. The Sky Islands are a unique treasure, unprecedented in both beauty and biodiversity. I was drawn to serving as part of the Sky Island Alliance Board because of the important work this organization does in serving the community and preserving this resource for future generations. I am an advocate for conservation efforts designed to encourage sustainable practices balanced by the obligations we all share to protect the wildlife, plants, and fragile ecosystem vital to this region.
